Fish oil has many health benefits. Yet, most American diets fall short of critically important omega-3 fatty acids. Fish oil supplements offer a convenient, inexpensive choice for consumers who want to incorporate fish oil into their diet. More information on Nature Made fish oil is available at NatureMade.com.

NOW Foods has been investigating the concerns raised by Manthey, Chiles, and the Mateel Justice Foundation for a number of months and has worked with environmental groups and our suppliers to ensure that our products are safety tested. We agree that the current testing methods for PCB's are highly variable and incomplete; currently there are no universal standards to test for the 209 different compounds that are included under the term PCB. However, we believe we are in compliance with the most widely followed industry and regulatory standards.
If consumers are concerned about this issue, we suggest that they look for products that are molecularly distilled and made from small fish with short life spans, such as anchovies and sardines. The majority of the Omega-3 concentrates on the market and in our product assortment are made from these smaller fish.
